Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Do you think Diablo Cody made up the phrase "Honest to blog"? Me neither...

Backbeat Online reviews an appearance by Witchcraft, Dead Child and Kingdom of Magic at the Marquis Theater, listens in to Abracastabya at Black Sheep in Colorado Springs, and finds something positive to say about the Yes album Tormato. There's something terribly wrong about that. Cafe Society posts a eulogy for La Praviana, another dear, departed eatery. The Cat's Pajamas takes a whiff of a very flowery Christina Aguilera. And Demver reveals Tent State University's sleepover plans during the DNC. Don't let the bed bugs bite. -- Michael Roberts

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
